is the irs scandal and how do you think the obama administration is did doing the white house in trying to handle it? >> i think it is quite serious. we don't know what its dimension is are and so on. the reason why this is problematic for the administration is one is that this action coincided with the political interests of the obama team that it so say the action was taken overwhelmingly against conservative groups. and the second thing is that the administration has had trouble telling the truth about it. as recently as just the other day you had the on his way out acting director saying on the hill argue gowing with the idea that any one was targeted and then, of course, congress asked for information which was not forthcoming when the irs higher ups found out about it in that never and congress was never told. another case where there has been difficulty telling the truth. you put the two things together and you have a combustible mix and this is the stuff from what scandals are made. the same applies might i add pair rennettically to benghazi as well. not a big deal in the middle

the attorney general of the united states. mr. holder typifies the essence of the obama white house crowd -- namely that they are entitled to their colossal sense of entitlement and staggering incompetence. besides, the president will protect them if they protect him. some argue this is a case of second-term blues, the fate of every president. they may be seen at prescient if the white house can keep the lid on the dirty details. for his part, obama is in fake concern mode, dumping 100 pages of emails about benghazi that have steered the press away from the main event. he is talking about congress providing him with more money to beef up security for our embassies abroad. he wants a shield law to protect journalists and of course, he fired a bureaucrat or two, all of whom have blamed their underlings. the newly fired irs steve steven miller said he was, quote, shocked -- shocked by the revelations. is that irony or willful ignorance? democrats were also furious that the irs and rangeled the affable democrat from new york with his own tax problems, expressings out outrage at the irs hearin

that the obama white house has some real explaining to do about their behavior. >> i think that is true, but i think that the media needs to be looking in the mirror or, as well. for example, the tea party and other conservative groups have been complaining about unfair targeting by the irs for the last three years. the press ignored them. given that if it was low-level aids, just people in cincinnati doing this and they didn't really have any political acumen, then it wouldn't have been hard for a reporter to pick up the phone and find out or for white house communication to find out if there was a problem. >> we already know washington d.c. knew about it. >> i know. >> let me ask you a question. i would think that all of these things really bother you in terms of the irs intimidating people because of their political point of view. >> i agree. >> benghazi, four dead americans and we did nothing before when requests were help were out there -- >> i don't agree with you on that. >> they were toll to stand down. >> i don't agree. >> and a web of lies was built afterwards. now the a.p. story. my
on what they're doing. >> jeff, does it pass the smell test that the obama white house itself would not be informed about this just from a potential p.r. standpoint? >> it certainly actually does pass the smell test that the white house would not be involved. attorney general holder had to know. there is no question that a decision like this goes all the way to the attorney general. now, just to put this in a little perspective, the a.p. has suggested that this is part of an investigation of a leak regarding a possible terrorist attack in yemen and the administration will surely say look, you know, it's all well and good that journalists want to protect their sources, but this is a matter of life and death. if this stuff gets leaked, people will die, so we are willing to take that extreme step. i think that's the kind of balance you're going to see on this story. >> we'll see what the department of justice says about it. dana, the other controversy is the news the irs intentionally red flagged conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status. they would look for key words like tea
that the white house intentionally deleted the reference to al qaeda to spare president obama embarrassment during his re-election campaign. >> what i want is the truth. >> reporter: the e-mails seem to support the administration that they made few changes and didn't intend a coverup. the white house cleared quickly but the state has major concerns. >> suddenly three days ago, this gets spun up as if there is something new to the story. there is no there there. >> reporter: but even if the white house had little involvement, it does show an internal battle between the state department and cia, neither of which wanted to be the focus of criticism this isn't the end by any means, the issue will come up when the president has a news conference two hours from now, and republicans are urging the white house to release more documents. they say they will call witnesses, this isn't going away. charlie, norah. >> bill plante thank you. >>> president obama will meet with the joint chiefs to deal with the ng problem of sexual assault in the military. two military officers accused

for political purposes by the obama white house and the department of justice? >> yes. gregg: is that an abuse of power? >> it's, yes, it is an abuse of power. the, when you have a situation where people's lives are at risk as they were in benghazi, and you make decisions whether to rescue them or not, or what story to put out or not, based on the demands of a political campaign, that's way too far. gregg: since you have drawn the connection with benghazi, let me put a rather straightforward question to you. given all you have seen and heard, including what the president said yesterday, do you think this president and the white house and his administration at large deliberately misled or lied to the american people? >> oh, there is no question in my mind that they deliberately misled the american people with regard to benghazi. and for him to have dismissed that as a sideshow i suggest is whistling past the graveyard. that is not a sideshow. that is the main event. gregg: when he says there is no there there, there is plenty there? >> there is plenty there. >> former attorney general michael m
that somehow the obama campaign, the obama white house, manipulated this to not say it was involved with terrorists. if you use the e-mails, it is clear they thought right to that week that it was a spontaneous demonstration that evolved in, it they used the word. evolved into the attack. then there was the mortar attack. i don't think it covers the state department with any glory, that's for sure. >> let me go to chuck todd for the last word. the politics of this thing from the beginning, was it protecting the secretary of state? was it protecting donlan? the one thing absent in all this discussion are name of principals. they're not in this discussion. it is already demts saying the building leadership. these weird references to their bosses. i have to assume going up to that "meet the press" day when susan rice was getting her audition to be secretary of state, there was an intense interest from the president on down in how good a job she did and i thought she did a hell of a job as a political warrior. >> there was politics involved here. when you read through this, if it had ju
